I use to love eating here and still would if I didn’t have Celiac. Food is good but is not safe anymore to eat. The last two times I ate here I got extremely sick.

Update Feb 2024: the gluten is back! Flour tortillas for burritos cooked on same surface as GF burritos. We had no problems with tacos, cheese quesadilla, and french fries, but SO bummed they are no longer 100% GF.

We ate here in Dec. 2023 and talked with them in detail. The gluten buns (see some other reviews) are a thing of the past. The kitchen is back to being 100% gluten free.

We like the food here. They have kids options and some vegetarian options. We've had a few special requests in the past that they always accommodate.

They also make a mean mezcal margarita.

It's awesome for the family to enjoy a place and everything on the menu without worries.

Seating is limited, especially in indoors but is a nice casual place.

UPDATE: NO LONGER GF SAFE

Just ate there and was assured there was a gf fryer and "concerns" about cross contamination. That didn't sound right so I tested the gf burrito and Nima says it has gluten. I'd already eaten some and now am sick. So sad bc I loved this place before they moved.

Old review: 500 stars!!!! This was the most amazing meal I've had all year. Everything on the menu is gf. Lots i choose from, tons of flavor.

Called to ask if they were back to being 100% GF and the girl on the phone said no, they still have regular gluten buns in house. But use protocols to ensure no cross contamination apparently. Still wary to eat here again, used to eat here weekly until they decided to put regular buns on their menu.

Amazing, everything is great and gluten free. Gluten free burrito and churros!

Updating this review- I ate here in the summer and was ill for the rest of the night. I thought it was my stomach being off. I ate chips and queso, a chicken taco and a shrimp taco.

They claim to have a 100% GF kitchen, though they do offer a sandwich with a regular roll (you can pay extra for a GF roll). Ate here without problems, though the food is rather salty!

Oh no! Updated 5/14/23 * We had dinner after sports this evening. We’ve eaten here at least a dozen times since our original visit. It was always fine. Tonight, two hours after eating my son became very sick. Classic gluten symptoms for him. Another recent review by another user seems to indicate cross contact. He hadn’t eaten anything else all day that could possibly pose a risk. This is so very upsetting for us. I did call and let them know. The manager wrote down what he ate and said she would be speaking with her manager asap. We will give it a couple months before we return*

We have eaten here three times. We’ve had tacos, empanadas, hamburgers, guacamole, French fries, chips, corn dogs and a few desserts. All three times the food was fabulous and enjoyed by everyone. It’s a takeout style restaurant with about three indoor tables and maybe six picnic tables out front.

This place was great, food is excellent. However they advertise as being a 100% gluten free kitchen which is extremely concerning as they offer regular buns for sandwiches. CC is definitely possible. You can't say you have a fully gluten free kitchen but not have one. Please get rid of the buns or stop saying you are fully gluten free. It's very misleading.

The food was quite good. However, they do have regular buns for the burgers, thus making the kitchen not 100% gluten free. I’m a bit concerned about the CC..

I've eaten here so many times in the last couple years since it opened and this had become my new favorite restaurant! I never had an issue until the last 2 times I got violently ill within 20 minutes of eating. I thought I was having a reaction to some other unknown food until I saw the other reviews on here. Both times I had the fish and shrimp taco, I had never tried these before so maybe they were always unsafe? Hopefully they can figure out what it is so that people stop getting sick. I called and let them know I got sick and they assured me everything is gluten free. I also noticed they changed their corn tortillas recently.

Just finished devouring my first takeout order from Toro Loco Mexican Street... delicious. I had heard good things, so I ordered a variety of small bites and a couple of tacos. The street corn esquites, empanadas, and molotes were all fantastic... and the beef barbacoa taco was BOMB. So. Good. Margaritas were tasty, too. I was able to confirm at pickup that everything was totally gluten-free, and the staff were super-friendly. Can't wait to go back!
